    Hello Sakthivel,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can get the top visible row index by accessing the vertical scroll position in grid. Refer to the code snippet below:

    GridVScrollBar vscrollBar = (GridVScrollBar)((GridTableElement)this.radGridView1.GridElement).Children[3]; 
    int vindex = vscrollBar.Value; 

    You can get the cell location by using the RowIndex and ColumnIndex properties of the GridCellElement. If you need the cell coordinates, use the ControlBoundingRectangle property.

    Do not hesitate to write us, if you need further assistance.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Has the way to do this changed for later releases?  I don't seem to have GridVScrollBar defined - I'm on 2011 Q2 release.

    Hi Ken,

    Yes, we have changed a lot since 2008. Now RadGridView scrolls smoothly, not row by row. That is why this approach will not work anymore. You can do the job by using the Index property of GridViewRowInfo:

    public int GetFirstVisibleRowIndex(RadGridView grid)
        foreach (GridRowElement row in this.radGridView1.TableElement.VisualRows)
            if (row.RowInfo is GridViewDataRowInfo || row.RowInfo is GridViewGroupRowInfo)
                return row.RowInfo.Index;
        return -1;

    If you have further questions, I will be glad to help.
    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
